Are you concerned about how the coronavirus will impact your coworking space? You’re not alone. As more and more offices begin to open back up, coworking space owners are searching for solutions to keep their tenants safe and healthy. One of the main challenges involved in this is making collaboration possible while still practicing good health protocols.
Collaboration is an essential part of the day to day in a coworking office. Start ups, small businesses, and teams often collaborate and work together in order to tackle large projects and brainstorm solutions to problems. But social distancing guidelines recommend keeping six feet of space between employees so collaborating can be a challenge.
But fear not. It’s very possible to maintain your collaborative atmosphere and follow the recommended safety precautions. All you need is a little bit of creativity and the right office furniture.
Preparing Your Coworking Office for the “New Normal”
Scientists have made it clear: the coronavirus is not going away anytime soon. We all have to adapt and adjust to the “new normal.” This, of course, includes the way we work. In a coworking office, preparing for reopening may look a little bit different than a traditional office because so much of the space is shared. So you may have to get creative about your solutions.
We recommend starting by first taking an inventory of your space and identifying high risk areas where socialization typically occurs. This could be your kitchen/breakroom, conference rooms, or restrooms. Once you’ve identified these areas, you can determine what action needs to be taken. Maybe you remove some of the chairs from your conference room or place tape on the floor to remind tenants of social distancing protocol. Every coworking office is different so it’s up to you to determine what needs to be done in your space. You can also check out the CDC website to read their recommendations for reopening.
